Bad Blue Boys and Torcida Clean Petrinja Ruins Throughout Night

December the 30th, 2020 – Due to the proximity of Petrinja to the City of Zagreb, Dinamo’s Bad Blue Boys were at the scene of the tragedy barely a few hours after it happened, reports Index.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, in a video received by Index (which can be viewed by clicking on the above link), Zagreb’s Bad Blue Boys are seen connected in a human chain in the pitch darkness, cleaning away the ruins of Petrinja following the horrific earthquake which struck yesterday. Although it can be seen in the video that many Dinamo fans are working hard and diligently without stopping, they nevertheless encourage each other during the cleaning process.

After working the first day and night in what is now the hell of Petrinja, the Bad Blue Boys went home to sleep in Zagreb, before returning this morning to help at the site of the quake.

“Bilo (Bijelo) srce” also launched an action to help the residents of Petrinja who were so horribly affected by the earthquake.

The association “Bilo srce” under the media sponsorship of Slobodna Dalmacija, Dalmatinski portal and Radio Dalmacija decided to launch an action called “Bilo srce kuca za sve vas” (Our white heart beats for all of you) with the aim of helping all of the residents of Petrinja, Sisak, Glina and surrounding areas affected by the earthquake. All funds raised will be donated to all those who need help, as was announced on Wednesday on Hajduk’s internet portal.

“On Tuesday, in record time, several aid trucks were gathered, which headed towards the affected areas during the night, as well as members of Torcida who are participating in the field operations today. At the same time, a large number of Hajduk fans have made own properties available for those whose homes were damaged in the earthquake and who need accommodation, and we’re ready to organise a reception if necessary. We’d like to thank everyone who was available all the time and offered their help, as well as everyone who will in any way get involved in this action in order to once again show the greatness of Hajduk’s heart,” the association stated.
